The actress, screenwriter and director Nadine Labaki was born in Lebanon. After graduating in Audiovisual Studies from Beirut University, she made a number of adverts and music videos, many of which won prizes. In 2004, she took advantage of a Residency at the Festival de Cannes to write "Caramel", her first feature film, which she made two years later. It was first presented at Directors’ Fortnight in 2007 and then screened worldwide, going on to become the biggest international hit in Lebanese film history. Nadine Labaki returned to Cannes in 2011 with "Et maintenant on va où?", a bold and universal parable on tolerance.
